Robert works for a travel agency and helps to arrange scenes from the everyday lives of "ordinary" Czech families as an attraction for Japanese tourists. He also works as a kind of matchmaker and occasionally helps to put together some of his friends. He helps to separate his friend Hanka from Peter, an announcer for an independent radio station who tries to capture "real" life by recording the moments from "reality" and playing them over the air. Vesna, came to Prague from Macedonia because it is according to her the best place for UFOs to land, but her real reason for coming is somewhat different... Hanka is followed by the crazy Ondrej, until then a respected brain surgeon, and married with two kids.

[Talking into the camera]
I get high because the world is cruel and people are lonely. I work so I can buy drugs that make people seem kind, friendly, free and beautiful. Trouble is, these drugs caused me to hurt someone. So it doesn't make sense for me to do them anymore. I've had it with drugs. I'm giving up weed.

I have to say its really great, perfect soundtrack, really interesting characters, which alike Knoflikari are real-looking, very nice camera and a very good story, storyline divided into episodes, not pushing you to laugh, but very funny, no mega topics, just stories of people who are alone different ways (single, even though having a partner or wife, stranger)... I fully recommend to see this movie.
My second recommendation would refer to Nuda v Brne, also czech movie, very nice, some people liked it more than Samotari, the third would be Knoflikari.
